Natural leather combat bracers.
Yes. I use only the highest quality thick cowhide, which I then cure in natural beeswax. Thanks to this, the leather gains complete water resistance and at the same time hardness suitable for protection. The inner side of the protector is covered with a thin layer of padding for maximum comfort. The hems of the edges made of beautiful grain leather add stiffness to the protector and improve their appearance.
The history of bracers.
The history dates back to ancient civilizations such as Greece, Rome and Egypt. These early bracers were made of leather or metal and were mainly used for protection in battle. When the use of archery became more widespread, bracers were used to protect the forearm from breaking the string. During the medieval period, bracers were used by knights as a form of armor to protect the forearm during battle. Due to the lack of finds of bracers from the early Middle Ages. It uses leather and adapts the form to the contemporary expectations of historical reenactors. Today, they have evolved into a popular fashion accessory worn by people who want to add a touch of medieval style to their outfits. They come in a variety of styles and materials, from leather to metal and even plastic.
